on, what has been going on in europe for a long time. dwindling religious interest. is that finally coming to the united states after 50 years of prediction? >> i think what is interesting to me this year is how much more visible secularism is. or nonreligion or unbelief. traditionally we think of churches and synagogues and mosques and we never think of this group of people, as kim said, have no interest in it. and it always seemed that they are a fairly small group, kind of on the edges. there is a study that came out this week that said unbelievers, and the religiously unaffiliated are the third largest group in the world. there are as many unaffiliated people in this world as there are catholics. it is a giant mental shift to realize the religious landscape we thought we knew is much different, i think. >> and i think your point is really interesting. we americans have resisted those trends that we saw in europe over several generations. and i don't think we have a clear answer yet. are americans becoming more european secular in their approach to religion? but it is a first tim

the situation worse. they've been running this experiment in europe where they've implemented austerity in a number of countries with the idea that we're going to reduce government spending in order to reduce deficits, because we want to get the ratio of debt to g.d.p. to the size of the economy down. but what happens when they've done that is even though they may have shrunken the numerical value of the debt, the economy has contracted so much more that the debt to g.d.p. ratios get worse. it actually makes the problem worse. so, austerity is bad medicine now. >> i just read the other day that this campaign "fix the debt" raised $60 million and hired and it recruited 80 corporate ceos to go to washington and lobby for fixing the debt. what do they want? >> i think reason why the corporate executives are so big on fixing the debt is because they know that if they don't -- when they have some control over the political system through their political action committees and republican control of congress, they can't cut entitlements now. when they do eventually become a problem that will re
